I guess this is a totally generic WP problem--or maybe host related?? Just looking for ideas to pursue here.
In one of the cases I tried instead of putting the code into a sidebar widget to put the code on a page. Just to see what would happen. As soon as I went to publish the page I got a php error and everything was hung till I deleted the offending code and threw it all away.
I've tried this on a fresh install of WP with no plugins and only the default theme with the same results.
The other weird thing is that I HAD used the adsense code a few months ago with any problem. I had removed it for non-technical reasons and just recently decided to put it back. NOW there is a problem?
ANY ideas what could be up here?
Thanks in advance!
